In a letter to the Board of the Friends of the Wallace House & Old Dutch Parsonage on April 14, 2008, New Jersey Assemblyman Peter J. Biondi (16th District) stated the following:
I agree that it would not be in the best interest to close the state parks and historic sites as proposed by the Governor and doing so is not the answer to the State’s budget crisis. I am adamantly opposed to closing these parks and historic sites, particularly the Wallace House and Old Dutch Parsonage located in Somerville. I will not support this proposal and will encourage my colleagues not to support this as well.
The Friends of the Wallace House and Old Dutch Parsonage thank Assemblyman Biondi for his support!
